About the Club

Fish enthusiasts doing fishy things. We have club events, field trips, speakers, volunteer opportunities, and more! Come further your enthusiasm for fish and meet others along the way. You don't have to be a Fisheries major to join!

Our club plays a role as a subunit of a professional organiziation called the American Fisheries Society which was founded in 1870 (under a different name then). We are part of a larger chapter called the CalNeva (California & Nevada) Chapter. This CalNeva Chapter is part of the bigger division called the Western Division of American Fisheries Society. Finally, this western division is part of the umbrella organization called the American Fisheries Society for the Nation. Their websites are listed below
